And what's great about this DVD is the pre-show package you can choose to watch before the movie... it includes a newsreel (bombing in China "watch as Shanghai, the New York of the Orient, is bombarded!"), an early Porky Pig Cartoon, a preview of a Bette Davis and Edward G. Robinson movie and a weird technicolor short film... Pretty great extra... kind of like Grindhouse for the '30s films.

really dude? how did you manage to avoid that one?

they have something like that on the 1930s Adventures of Robin Hood also, with an old cartoon and everything. More old DVDs should have that. It's always fun to see a little time capsule just open up like that.

Dammit, you can be forgiven for that. And here we all were thinking you hadn't seen an actually important Hitchcock film...
June 20, 2008, 12:57 a.m. CST
There are a few Hitchcocks I haven't seen... that sounded really dirty, but you know what I mean. Torn Curtain was not the one I was referring to in yesterday's talkback...

Humphrey Bogart in an early role as a criminal... oh, and he’s incarcerated... and happens to be Sheridan’s sister.<p>Okay, well that changes everything.

You'd think Bogart playing a woman would have been worth more of a mention.

I Am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang? That's gotta be my favorite movie from the early sound era. Seeing u've missed quite a few must see movies (not a dig, just an observation), be sure to add that to your list asap if you haven't seen it yet!

DVDs are really well put together. A movie, a short, a cartoon, a newsreel. Some great stuff on them.

You've made it 18 days in a row so far. Keep up the good work, man! These have been really fun to read. <br> <br> That pic of Bogart in a tight embrace with a guy in the bottom corner of the lobby card is a great example of Bogie's acting ability. I never knew he played a woman in any of his movies. And in a prison film, to beat. Sweet. <br> <br> That has be be the funniest typo on AICN in a long time...
